Here is an excerpt from the book:

With his growing résumé, Sidney Crosby had become the poster boy for the NHL. He was the most recognizable hockey player in the world. In an interview in Calgary in 2010, he was asked how he spends his time in a city where he’s so recognized. Crosby laughed and said he mostly stayed in his room and definitely didn’t go shopping. Crosby has been humble throughout his career and it really shone through in this interview. It’s important to remember that Sid the Kid had been in the spotlight since he was a real kid, since before he was a teenager. A lot of child stars don’t learn how to deal with the spotlight and they develop a warped sense of what the world is like and what their place in it is. Not Sidney Crosby. He says that, in the age of camera phones and very little privacy, he has to remember that that’s all he’s ever known, and he must learn to live and deal with it. That’s a lot of hiding in hotel rooms; but it’s the price you pay when you’re the best hockey player in the world. Perhaps the more difficult part is what happens when you fall out of the spotlight.
